Oh, but wait, before I go, I HAVE to tell y'all something - a secret something that Gay Panda is going to kick my ass for! Muahahahaha!
In a Faustian bargain with fate, Gay Panda has been clambering onto the treadmill to work out each time a book sells.
That's right; tell your friends! Now you know your own power - you can send Q-sized Panda to the 'mill with a simple click of your mouse!
Ya know, I just can't watch Kung Fu Panda without transposing Gay Panda into the character of Po. I'm always saying to myself, "oh no, Gay Panda wouldn't do it like that" and drift of into what I perceive GP would do. I wish my kids didn't like that movie so much.
If I just said LOL, I lied. Do or do not. There is no try.
Brave was awesome. I saw it with a feminist friend, and we both agreed that it was the most girl-positive movie we've seen in ages ("shockingly not offensive" was my immediate comment). I'd still like to see the day when we can have a movie like Up! with a girl as the main character and have it be normal, but Brave was a good step in the right direction for portraying a positive image of girlhood in a kids' movie.
